. that's because, as "the new york times" reported just a few weeks ago, the obama administration has simply on its own redefined civilian to mean any male of military age who was found in a strike zone meaning anyone that we kill who is a male of the age between 16 and 54 we automatically count as a militant or a terrorist without knowing anything about what they've been doing, who they really are. what independent researchers have found by going into pakistan and to yemen and somalia is that there are hundreds and hundreds of innocent women men and children who have been killed by u.s. drones. so dianne feinstein and the obama administration can stand up all they want and say that civilian deaths are in the single digits. the rest of the world and independent facts prove that's a falsehood. >> john: brennan told senator wyden, democrat of oregon, there was a misimpression out there that drone strikes are used to punish terrorists. i don't know who had that impression but brennan insisted the c.i.a. sends in the drones only as a last resort to save lives when no other alternative is
